Life After Macular Degeneration

Macular Degeneration is a health condition that results in harm to the macula, a small yet crucial section of the retina which plays a key role in central vision. This may result in haziness or shadows in the middle of one’s field of vision, causing challenges in perceiving intricate details, reading, or identifying faces.

Approximately one in 10 Americans aged 50 and older have the early form of AMD and approximately 1 out of every 100 Americans ages 50 and older have the vision threatening late form of AMD. -Prevent Blindness
